I believe you can install apk's via ADB. What I would do is install a file explorer app such as ES File Explorer which is my favorite and then use that to install apk's from the SD card.

I don't have a Max yet so I can't say 100% or create a step by step tutorial with pics.

Have you tried installing other apk's such as a file manager, SU and games like Angry Birds?


OK, I've done some more works, and in fact, there is a wrapper to run .bin "old" innotab apps.
While downloading some cartridge, the bin file is downloaded, then all the wrapping is done by the console. It will build an apk and add some protection mechanism. Don't know yet how this works, so not able to mimic the wrapper.

And it's likely that the said protection mechanism phones home to VTech for authentication, yes?

So it is fairly easy to modify the fakeapp.db and put downloaded Android apps into the Games section on the Innotab UI.

It's quite a manual process although I don't see why someone can't automate this (I'm not a dev, just a tinkerer).

The apps appear in the Games section or in the Other section under Downloads if you want it there. You can also easily put new video's in there too.

Yes, this is what I've done, and now I have full access to any games in the innotab gameshelf app.
Problem to automation this one is that the DB is encryped and the lib for the windows distribution is not free. (SQLCipher)

Once you have acces to the DB, you can fairly easily add inputs for "normal" android games, by adding entries in the table named "full". The "category" field must be filled with "GAME" if you want this one to be available in the gameshelf, or "VIDEO" for vids, "EBOOK" for ebooks.

As for automation, can't you just use internal commands on the tablet itself to add the data? For instance... the LeapPad Ultra has an encrypted database, but has functions that are used to install games, so you could simply run those commands to update the database and the tablet itself does the importing of the database.

Or if you put it as "Other" then it appears in the downloads app in the Other tab which is where I've put YouTube.

I wouldn't have a clue. I'm no dev, I've just been playing about with the DB and posting my results on the XDA forum under my wolverine_2k username. Would be great if a dev could one day work this out. For the time being I have all the apps on there that I want. The last thing I'd like to figure out how to do is put all the cartridge games into the Games tab to prevent having to swap/carry around cartridges.
